Certificate in Foundations of AI:

This 12 week online course introduces the most important ideas, techniques, and applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is specifically targeted at those with an interest in, and aptitude for, working with AI but who do not necessarily have a background in AI or a related area.

This programme provides students with the fundamental skills and knowledge required to start a career in AI, pursue higher education, or gain advanced insights that complement their current role. Additionally, this programme would be suitable for those returning from a career break or simply seeking to upskill in AI.

Is this course for me?

This programme is targeted at people interested in transitioning into working with AI, who do not already have a background in AI or a related area. Learners do not need significant existing technical skills and will be provided with the foundational skills and knowledge to begin a career as an AI specialist, or to continue into further education in AI.

This programme is delivered in partnership with TU Dublin and Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet.
